Documenting Surveillance Projects: Bluebeam Revu

Author: Michael Budalich, Published on Aug 02, 2013

In the construction industry, the PDF file is king. Everything from RFPs to close-out documents are generated in PDF so they can be easily and quickly distributed electronically. However, being able to effectively markup, estimate from, and manage all of these construction PDF files can be limited and cumbersome with most PDF editors or readers. Sharing PDF documents with applications such as Dropbox, Skydrive and Google Drive is effective but leaves a lot to be desired when collaborating on a project with others when it comes to tracking and managing changes or revisions.

In this note, we examine one option from Bluebeam, called Revu, that is being used to solve some of these problems.
